In the recent interview with LA Times, TLC opened up about their hopes for the latest album, as well as wanting to put out a remix album at some point!
TLC’s last album, 2002’s “3D,” was completed using vocals from Lopes’ limited-released solo effort, “Supernova.”
The duo last made a comeback in 2013.
Then, a guest appearance on J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” netted TLC its first major hit in more than a dozen years, and the group produced a VH1 biopic, “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story,” that became the highest-rated film in the network’s history.
“We have been really blessed,” Thomas said. “Its been 20-plus years, and we’ve never broken up. We’re never breaking up.”
It was the excitement over the VH1 film that led Reid to sign the group to a single deal with Epic Records. The deal spawned “Meant to Be,” its first single since 2003, but quickly soured and left TLC on its own again.
It might be TLC’s last new album, but the group hopes to do a remix album, is considering anniversary reissues and would like to play festivals. Additionally, the two are aggressively pursuing a residency in Las Vegas.
“We’re blessed to have a body of music, so why would you not live off that and take it a step further?” Watkins said. “We’ve put in all this work for 25 years — it’s time to work smarter, not harder.”
